The Rev 25 NYC showcase kicked off last night at Irving Plaza here in New York City. Texas is the Reason (once again here on the blog) headlined and brought out the ’90s indie/emo in everybody:
And then the mission was to get out to Brooklyn for the official afterparty with Chain of Strength, a sorta warm-up gig for their big reunion tonight at Irving Plaza. 200 people sardined into a 100-person sweatbox, some of the best pitting I’ve seen in a while. I thought the guy in front of me, who kept leaning into me, was trying to get it goin’ – and then I realized he was having a seizure. Awesome.
Oh, and yes, Chain still hasn’t missed a beat.
